Favorite Quote:
"Narwals-the unicorn of the sea!"

Hand and hand
Listening to the band
The man says,
“Please don’t cry for me, honey
Save the final dance for me, darling
After all these years
Our love, our fights, our joy, our tears
So save the final dance for me”
The music stopped playing
The monitors line went straight
A women shed a single tear.

I was inspired in by a prompt that my teacher gave me on a dancer, and i changed the mood of the poem
